More De-Stablization in Brooklyn

not a good week to be a stable. Or someone who lives next to one for
that matter. Alongside its report on the demise of the Bond Street
stable, this week’s edition of Brooklyn Papers highlights the “enraged”
reaction of Kensington residents to news that a 19th-century working
stable is being downsized to make way for an 8-story, 108-unit
development. The Daily News notes that 13 horses are being displaced by
Williamsburg developer Moshe Feller. Ironically, the stable’s best hope
to continue life as it knows it is to go the development route itself:
If the group can raise funds, it plans to apply for a variance to build
a second stable and riding ring on the remaining stable’s roof.
